  1. Warriors’ Jermaine O’Neal to have wrist surgery, out indefinitely

    Dec 12, 2013, 8:30 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Sacramento Kings

    After trying to play through it for a month and it not really working, Golden State’s Jermaine O’Neal is going to have surgery to repair the torn ligaments on the outside of his right wrist, the team announced Thursday. 1 of 2) @jermaineoneal will undergo arthroscopic surgery tomorrow to address a torn ligament in his…

  2. The Extra Pass: The league’s leading lineups; plus Tuesday’s recaps

    Dec 11, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Toronto Raptors v Houston Rockets

    After watching two of the league’s best starting lineups duke it out in Indiana, let’s check in on the best and worst lineups around the league so far this season. Best Net Efficiency Rating (minimum 150 minutes) Houston: Patrick Beverley-James Harden-Chandler Parsons-Terrence Jones-Dwight Howard Net efficiency is the difference between a team’s offensive rating and…

  3. The Extra Pass: The Wild West, can Portland last, and Sunday’s Recaps

    Dec 2, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Denver Nuggets

    Let’s jump around the Western Conference with a few observations: Portland: 20 percent of the regular season is in the books, and the Trail Blazers hold the pole position in the Western Conference. It’s a great accomplishment and something absolutely no one expected, but the Blazers should come back down to earth soon enough. Wesley…

  4. The Extra Pass: Gumbo and The Brow, and Tuesday night’s recap

    Nov 27, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    New Orleans Pelicans v Memphis Grizzlies

    The New Orleans Pelicans roster was assembled with all the care of an inebriated person making gumbo. Three ball-dominant guards in addition to the ball-dominant guard we just drafted? Sure, that will work. A stretch 4 and a stretch 5? Toss ‘em in. The individual pieces in New Orleans are talented, to be certain, but…

  5. Andre Iguodala avoids surgery, but can the Golden State Warriors stay healthy?

    Nov 24, 2013, 11:00 AM EDT

    Andre Iguodala

    This has been a brutal week in the NBA for injuries, but telling that to the Golden State Warriors is like preaching to the choir. The Warriors had already lost key rotation players in Toney Douglas and Jermaine O’Neal to minor injuries, and that’s in addition to being without backup centers Ogjen Kuzmi and Festus Ezeli.…

  6. Portland Trail Blazers and Golden State Warriors scrap on the court (VIDEO)

    Nov 24, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Phoenix Suns

    Well, that escalated quickly. No one threw a trident (Anchorman references are acceptable again, right?), but there were big ramifications from the on-court scuffle between the Portland Trail Blazers and Golden State Warriors. The tussle started when Andrew Bogut and Joel Freeland got tied up in the paint, and things went to another level once…

  7. Warriors’ reserves embarrasses themselves, so Mark Jackson embarrasses them

    Nov 20, 2013, 3:00 PM EDT

    Mark Jackson

    With his team up 23 points and fewer than four minutes remaining against the Jazz on Monday, Warriors coach Mark Jackson pulled his top players in favor of Ognjen Kuzmic, Marreese Speights, Nemanja Nedovic, Kent Bazemore and Draymond Green (who was replaced by Dewayne Dedmon a few seconds later). Promptly, those five reserves ceded a…

  8. NBA All-Star balloting opens with some interesting questions

    Nov 15, 2013, 4:56 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant

    If he doesn’t come back until December, is Kobe Bryant still a starting All-Star guard in the West? Or should Stephen Curry or James Harden have that spot? Does Kevin Love move past Tim Duncan into the starting lineup? Is Paul George a starter in the East? Is it time for a Derrick Rose/Kyrie Irving…

  9. Report: Kendrick Perkins out next two games due to death in family

    Nov 13, 2013, 1:21 PM EDT

    Kendrick Perkins

    Oklahoma City has a couple big games the next two days — against the Clippers on Wednesday night than a nationally televised game against the Warriors Thursday — but they will play those without Kendrick Perkins. With the blessing of the team he has returned to Texas due to a death in the family, reports…

  10. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Pacers, Rockets, T-Wolves and Sixers on top

    Nov 4, 2013, 2:04 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v New Orleans Pelicans

    The first few weeks of the Power Rankings see crazy fluctuations — teams that aren’t really that good start off hot, teams that are good start cold, so teams bounce up and down the rankings like they are on a bungee cord the first few weeks. Eventually things find their level. But this week was…

  11. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Let the season begin!

    Oct 28, 2013, 1:16 PM EDT

    LeBron James

    To celebrate a new season, we bring you a new set of NBA Power Rankings from PBT. Let the kvetching about your ranking begin! Just remember that this is an exercise in fun — these are meaningless as the NBA has a playoff system to decide who is best. What sport would rely on journalist’s…

  12. Report: Andrew Bogut, Warriors agree to three year, $43 million extension

    Oct 25, 2013, 7:41 PM EDT

    Andrew Bogut

    It comes down to this: In the playoffs last year, the Golden State Warriors’ defense was 7.8 points per 100 possessions better when Andrew Bogut was on the court. Stephen Curry is the new star and Andre Iguodala was brought in to be the glue guy and defend the wings, but if the Warriors are…

  13. PBT Extra: Pacific Division Preview

    Oct 22, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant

    The Pacific Division is fascinating this season. It has a genuine contender (Clippers, I’m higher on them than most), a team trying to get to that level (Warriors), a team that thinks it is better than it is (Lakers), a rebuilding team with one key piece (Kings) and a team all in for the lottery…

  14. Young, Iguodala with highlight dunks in Warriors win over Lakers (VIDEO)

    Oct 18, 2013, 11:48 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers' Young reacts after scoring against Golden State Warriors during their NBA Global Games in Shanghai

    Everyone could use a Swaggy P highlight before lunch. Golden State routed the Los Angeles Lakers 115-89 in Shanghai, China, early in the morning here (it was a 4:30 a.m. start in the cities where those teams play). Klay Thompson dropped 25 points to lead a Warriors team that shot 51.1 percent overall and hit…

  15. Report: Warriors, Bogut talking contract extension

    Oct 16, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Andrew Bogut

    Last season in the playoffs the Warriors defense was 7.8 points per 100 possessions better when Bogut was on the court and was the anchor in the paint. Look at it this way: When Bogut was on the court the Warriors defense was close to the Bulls regular season defensive numbers, when he sat they…

  16. D’Antoni on Kobe playing opening night: “No. I don’t think so.”

    Oct 15, 2013, 12:07 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers' Bryant gestures to his teammates before their game against the Golden State Warriors at the NBA Global Games in Beijing

    It always seemed pretty much impossible that Kobe Bryant would be back from his ruptured Achilles tendon in April in time for the NBA’s opening night. But because he’s Kobe Bryant we all looked at it differently — this guy played with a broken finger on his shooting hand and just adjusted his shot to…

  17. Andrew Bogut, Xavier Henry highlights from Lakers/Warriors in Beijing (VIDEO)

    Oct 15, 2013, 10:07 AM EDT

    Stephen Curry

    You could have NBA basketball for breakfast Tuesday. The Golden State Warriors beat the Los Angeles Lakers 101-95 in a game played in Beijing, one that started at 7:30 am Eastern. There were a few highlights so we’re bringing them to you — Xavier Henry with the half-court alley-oop finish from Steve Blake, and Andrew Bogut…

  18. Andrew Bogut cautious about believing the hype surrounding Warriors

    Oct 12, 2013, 9:30 PM EDT

    Andrew Bogut

    The Warriors overachieved last year by reaching the second round of the playoffs, and did so without a full complement of healthy players. The expectations are even higher entering this season, with the addition of Andre Iguodala in free agency and most of the key pieces anticipated to be 100 percent by the time the…

  19. Harrison Barnes likely to miss Warriors’ next two preseason games in China due to foot injury

    Oct 12, 2013, 12:30 PM EDT

    barnes white sleeved

    Harrison Barnes started 81 games as a rookie for the Warriors last season, and his explosiveness and athleticism on both ends of the floor were among the reasons the team exceeded expectations by getting to the second round of the playoffs. Health has been an ongoing concern in Golden State in recent years, so with…

  20. Harrison Barnes, Klay Thompson and Andre Iguodala competing for two starting spots

    Oct 10, 2013, 10:55 AM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Denver Nuggets - Game Two

    Ever since the Warriors signed Andre Iguodala, Harrison Barnes has been pegged as Golden State’s sixth man. To his credit, Barnes said he’d be fine with that role. Barnes had an up-and-down rookie year, but he broke out in the playoffs by averaging 16.1 points and 6.4 rebounds per game. That’s the type of performance…

  21. Lakers’ Xavier Henry’s half court buzzer beater (VIDEO)

    Oct 6, 2013, 10:59 AM EDT

    Xavier Henry, Dewayne Dedmon

    Kobe Bryant is in Germany (he was going to get around to telling Mike D’Antoni he was going but it slipped his mind). Pau Gasol and Steve Nash were watching in suits. So the Lakers had to turn to some of the guys fighting to make the team/get minutes to step up against Golden State…

  22. Danny Ainge: Not worth tanking for Andrew Wiggins

    Oct 4, 2013, 1:25 PM EDT

    0515_wiggins_0

    Every active No. 1 pick, with the exception of Tim Duncan, who has been in the NBA at least six seasons – Greg Oden, Andrea Bargnani, Andrew Bogut, Dwight Howard, LeBron James, Kwame Brown, Kenyon Martin and Elton Brand –  has changed teams by age 28. It’s an era where teams must kowtow to top…

  23. Report: Stephen Curry leaving Nike for Under Armour endorsement deal

    Sep 27, 2013, 12:43 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Phoenix Suns

    Under Armour has been trying to break bigger into the NBA market for a while and they lined up some nice stars — Brandon Jennings, DeAndre Jordan — who fans know but who have never really broken into the big time. That has changed. Stephen Curry is leaving Nike for a new Under Armour deal,…

    Jeremy Lamb

    Here is our regular look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT) — done in bullet point form. Because bloggers love bullet points. • This is a few months old, but did you know Thunder reserve Jeremy…

  25. Andre Iguodala thinks his skill set is underappreciated

    Sep 20, 2013, 1:27 PM EDT

    Andre Iguodala

    In the bottom line definition of how much a player is worth to a team, Andre Iguodala is a $12.9 million a year player. However, there is no one definitive way to judge a player’s worth — not money, not points per game, not PER, not All-Star appearances, not rings. None of it alone defines…
